Our patio is now a terrace

I've been very busy at work the last few weeks and I have not had the inclination to update this blog when I get home. I'll try and rectify that.

Our patio was finished about a week and a half ago. We've been talking about getting rid of the concrete paving slabs for many years.

In our heads we envisaged a brick patio with the bricks in a herring bone pattern.

That is exactly what we now have.

We'd looked at doing it ourselves a couple of years ago but once I lifted a slab I decided it would take us too long to do a good job.

Having seen Reagan Landscapes team at work, I was right to let the professionals do the job.  They had diggers, removed massive amounts of concrete to get down to an appropriate depth and then added back aggregate and layers of sand.

The brickwork is excellent and they paid great attention to detail. We are very pleased with the results. The whole job from start to finish took them less than three weeks.

It had not occurred to us before but with the drop in levels and the steps it is now a terrace not just a patio.
